Nora powered through the dried wheat and sand-coloured fibres sprinkling across the runway in Simon Porte Jacquemus’s most recent show “LE RAPHIA”. Continuously exhibiting earth-toned collections, serene locations and brilliant and beautiful experiences, Jacquemus’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection was all about being bound by earth and the harmony of timeless beauty.

Delivering his designs with elegance and adoration, Nora walked Karl Lagerfeld’s final collection, the Autumn/ Winter 2019 show that was designed shortly before his death. Transformed to be a bright blue sky village of 12 Alpine chalets, the Grand Palais revealed a picture-perfect scene, setting a celebratory mood that honoured the brightness that was Mr Lagerfeld.

Nora brought to life her purple two-piece in Pieter Mulier’s third collection, displaying a tension between control and release – the inherent contradiction at the heart of the Maison Alaïa. ‘A refinement discovered in the savage grace of the raw’. All the clothes are built on a paradox — at the same time: ‘brut and well-made, imperfect and sophisticated, deconstruct and structuralized’. As beauty in its most genuine form.

Paris Hilton wasn’t the only star on Donatella Versace’s SS23 rebellious runway. Dressed to impress, Nora Attal displayed boss energy in her bold look. Donatella said the show was all about “A woman who is confident, smart and a little bit of a diva. She is a strong liberated woman; she is gorgeous; she knows it. She is the Goddess of Freedom.” – and Nora certainly understood the assignment.

Closing the show alongside Bella Hadid and Loli Bahia, Nora was a standout in Nicolas Di Felice’s Surf and Scuba-Inspired Elevated Beach Attrire collection. Bringing the beach indoors through the eccentric staging of the circular catwalk with sand falling from the sky, Felice’s archival reenvisioning was nothing less than iconic. Making it look so effortless, Nora beautifully showed off her garments, shoes in hand, feet on the sand.
